Le Bastit | Bedrooms: 5 | Sleeps: 10 + 1
Rates: from £5,361 per week
This beautiful 14th/15th century Chateau is located right next to the Dordogne River overlooking the small hamlet 'Le Bastit' and set across the border from Dordogne into the more 'off the beaten track' Lot department. The property boasts 5 spacious en-suite bedrooms, terraced gardens and a gated infinity pool with views over the Dordogne River. Ideally located between the cliff side village Rocamadour and Sarlat as well as close to the spectacular underground cave 'Gouffre de Padirac', the Chateau is the ideal base for families or groups of friends to explore the famous sites of Dordogne.
This beautifully renovated, authentic Chateau has a lot of charm with typical stone floors and walls, a large fireplace and beamed ceilings. There are two ground floor bedrooms with external access only and three further bedrooms on the second floor. All bedrooms are en-suite with bath tub and separate WC. The Chateau is fully air conditioned and equipped with Satellite TV with English Channels and WiFi Internet access. One the first floor all guests can come together in the country style kitchen and the large living room with adjacent billiard room that can also be used for formal dining. Kitchen and living room are open onto the beautiful outside dining terrace with stunning views. The owners of Chateau de la Dordogne own another Chateau that is operated as a 5 star hotel. Guests can benefit from the hotels' private tennis court and enjoy lunch or dinner at the Michelin starred restaurant. The hotel can be reached within a 10min drive or a 20-25min hike over a private little path. The Lot department is a region full of culture and history. Many castles and caves are open for visitors. The region is also known for truffles, foie gras, chestnuts and walnuts and food lovers will be amazed with all the gourmet places and local markets to visit.

The finishing touches
Ever dreamt of driving through the Chianti hills in a red Ferrari, or along the Moyenne Corniche to Monaco in a Bentley? How about sailing along the Cote d'Azur to St Tropez in a private yacht or speed boat? Sometimes the home is all that you need, but if you're lured into culture, excitement, activity, improving your cooking or simply dabbling in landscapes, then speak to one of our Villa Specialists for an insight into what we can arrange. These are what we call our ‘Finishing Touches’.
The list is by no means exhaustive and we always welcome requests, however obscure you may think they are! Our local offices enable us to control the quality of the services on offer and the depth of knowledge our local teams have is impressive. Our aim is to provide guests with the authentic sights, flavours and experiences of the region they are staying in.
